The emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere due to human activities is accelerating climate change. Modelling projects that global temperatures may increase by at least 1.5°C as early as 2040. This global warming is a challenge that must be addressed to ensure the future well-being of human societies and the Earth. To curb the rise in global temperatures, it has been suggested that economies and societies worldwide must undergo a period of rapid and far-reaching transformation to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

The private sector has a crucial role to play in this transformation. Specifically, businesses from all parts of the private sector should develop systematic approaches to address climate change, and modify their overall business strategies to better understand, anticipate and navigate new risks and opportunities. Businesses that take immediate and ambitious action will survive and thrive during this transformation period. However, substantial internal and external barriers may hinder businesses seeking to reduce or eliminate their emissions of greenhouse gases.

Success Stories

  • GER
  • Bosch
  • BWM
  • Asahi Kasei & CAC
  • Jiangxi Green Recycling Co., Ltd (GER), owned by GEM Group, is a company specializing in the comprehensive utilization of electronic wastes and modification and regeneration of waste plastics. At present, GER has formed the integrated electronic waste utilization industrial chain of “waste products – recycling and dismantling – resource utilization – modification and transformation – new products”. In 2021, GER cooperated with TÜV Rheinland to evaluate the full life cycle carbon footprint of its two recycled plastic products. Accurate data provided by TÜV Rheinland successfully verified the high performance and low emission characteristics of the products. It leads the green and low-carbon development of recycled plastics industry and has attracted great attention in domestic and overseas market.

  • Bosch has fully offset the greenhouse emissions from the whole life cycle of its Vivalytic cartridge, a point-of-care testing platform for molecular diagnostics produced in 2019, and the mouthpieces of Vivatmo, a breath analysis device. TÜV Rheinland, a Germany-based independent testing service provider, independently verified, supervised and tracked the carbon neutralization results for these two types of consumable medical devices. After confirming the results, TÜV Rheinland awarded Bosch carbon neutralization certification for its products.

  • The BMW Group (BMW) conducted life cycle assessment of its new 7-series plug-in hybrid 745Le in comparison with the conventional 7-series models in 2019. As a third-party certification agency, TÜV Rheinland independently reviewed the methods and results of the assessment and supported the conclusion that the Global Warning Potential of the 754Le is about 33% lower than that of the conventional 7-series models throughout its whole life cycle. In 2013 and 2015, TÜV Rheinland also provided third-party verification for life cycle assessment conducted by Nissan and Toyota for their new energy vehicles and conventional models, respectively. In addition, it evaluated the contribution that the new energy vehicles offer to carbon emission reduction in a sound, objective and fair manner.
